It is stated that women use an average of 12 beauty care products every day. There are a large amount of toxic chemicals that are in conventional products. So you are putting on beauty products in order to create beauty but you are doing your skin and your insides a dis-service by not understanding the toxic chemicals that are harming you in other ways.
That being said would it benefit you if you fed your skin natural products that work in harmony with your body instead of toxic chemicals that the body does not recognize?
The most important thing that I can emphasize is for you to start looking at the INGREDIENTS in the purchases that you make and ask questions. Where you put your money speaks very loudly. You do have a voice. You can just continue to support the large companies that do not have your best interest in mind, whose main concern is how to keep their stock holders happy and keep expanding the growth of the company in dollars or you can learn how to support people that are out for all of our best interest.
Also, did you know that the average markup for skin care products is a between 500 and 1000%!!!! It disheartens me to have to type this but even in the organic industry some companies products include petrochemicals READ THE LABELS.
So who are you to trust? Trust in yourself. Whatever you can place into your body you can also place on the outside of your body without ill effects. This gives you a lot of versatility. If you are not interested in learning how to creating your own products support companies and others who care about what happens to our bodies as well as our environment.
